THE LOVE OF A HORSE... A DAY IN THE LIFE OF APOLLO




Carol Whitaker & Apollo, Ster Friesian Stallion

THE LOVE OF A HORSE

A DAY IN THE LIFE OF APOLLO...

The eternal bond of an equine best friend is truly priceless. Today Apollo touched my heart deeply.. My sweet husband & I took him to get collected at a repo clinic this morning. As I unloaded him form our trailer the vet was getting the teasing mare in place and making the preparations to collect him. Apollo knew exactly why we were there, he was calling out to all the mare in the barn which were a few yards away from us as he pranced showing what a magnificent stallion he is.

As we were waiting watching them work busily in the barn I looked up at Apollo and said, "Stand sill Apollo, we have a to wait a bit..." he immediately he stop prancing and calling out and stood next to me in stillness as the perfect gentleman that he is... then he reached down his gorgeous head and hugged me as he looked me deep into my eye, I reached around his massive neck and squeezed him tightly expressing aloud my love for him.

Then moments later the vet tech walked towards us letting us know that they were ready for him. Apollo knew exactly what was going on and he began acting like a great big awesome stallion that he is once again... 

I don't know of another stallion with such love and tenderness as Apollo has for me. I will never forget the precious moment we shared today... it was a memory I will never forget! ♥\
